I prefer the hard cover.

Its more sturdy and not bendable as paperback can be @_@'

And when the hardcover has that annoying sleeve over it, I take it off =3

Paperback. Easier to handle and I won't care as much if it gets damaged, unless it's a newer series that came out as first edition. Like my VA series. I let someone borrow the first one and apparently a Gatorade bottle leaked in her bag and ruined it. But since the series became more popular it's switched over to hardback ._.

I prefer hardcover for looks and durability. I prefer paperback when I have a lot of books to carry. I prefer electronic books when possible (as long as it is not online.)

I enjoy both hardcover and paperback. Given the choice; I think I'd choose Hardcover. Then again, my book collection is already rather ridiculous and paperbacks are easier to travel with. So I'd say at home Hardcover, Travel paperback.

However lately I've gotten an E Reader. It's saved me a lot of money on those new releases that cost 20-30 Hardcover normally, but you can download it for like 12.99. If I like a book enough, then I'll go to the story and buy a non-digital copy, but the E Reader is just a bit easier to travel around with, especially if you can finish a book in a day so tend to bring like 5 paperbacks on one trip. This way it saves on luggage space.

I like paperbacks since I like lying on my back to read, plus it'd be lighter to carry around. But it doesn't really matter to me, unless the jacket of a hardcover is falling off.

For books I intend to keep in my personal library it is definitely hardcover, especially if it is a book I really like.

Soft cover is okay, as are e-books. But an actual hardcover will last a lot longer then a softcover.

This is hilarious. I went to a bar with a girlfriend one night. A guy sitting next to me turned to face me and asked 'hardcover or paperback?' My friend was didn't get it. She was miffed. I laughed because that had to have been the best pick-up line I'd heard in ages.

Like the OP, I'd go hardcover any day.

Gee, do I hate the electronic ones Dx
But to be honest I prefer the hardcover books 'cause they make me feel smarter and it's harder to break them / bend the covers and such

If it was something I planned on hanging onto for a long time, then I would prefer hardback. If It is my first time reading it, I would go paperback.
